Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) - Three weeks after a Grand Forks man was shot and killed in his apartment during a burglary, community support is building for the family.


Family and friends of 24-year-old Jose Lopez are hosting a benefit this weekend in Park River.

Proceeds will go to Lopez's family to help with medical and funeral costs.

Family and friends say after hearing about the tragedy, they felt compelled to help.

Margaret Borgeson/Organizing Fundraiser for Murder Victim’s Family: “We really want to get the community involved. There was a lot of people that wanted to help them out and I just decided to step up and do something for them and really just kind of open up the doors so that people would have something they feel like I accomplished something, I did something for them.”

The benefit will be this Sunday from 11 to 2 at the Park River American Legion.
